By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An area college received an award for their math program.

Chippewa Valley Technical College was honored for being the first college in the country to implement the Carnegie Math Instructional Program. The program has two elements: quantway, which deals with quantitative analysis, and statway, which is the statistics curriculum.
The program offers students a new way to learn math by involving current topics or common life situations, such as health care, politics, sports playoffs and cell phone plans.

"This is more of an emphasis on productive struggle for students. We present a problem situation and we have students by having higher level questions and having them discuss in a collaborative group, they design a method in solving that problem with guidance from that teacher when needed,” said Jim Bockenfeld, math instructor at CVTC.
